it's DU Fantasizers fantasy football semifinals week and it's a tight race

It's been a wild year in DU fantisizers football.The regular season ended with the two best teams in the league in the same division(division one)the well deserved #1 going to Touchdown There with a regular season best record of9-4 and second in the division Callahan's Crew posting a very respectable 8-5 record and a number three overall playoff seed.
In division two my team(Backwoodsbobs lions)ran off a 4 game winning streak to sneak into the top spot in a wild three team 7-6 tie for the division title with War Pigs and Lunar Landers posting the same records to push all three into the playoffs.

Week one saw Touchdown there and Backwoodsbobs lions get bye weeks
War Pigs advanced to the second round with a convincing 151 to 120 win over Lunar Landers to get the right....or the dubious distinction to fight overall number one Touchdown there this week for the right to advance to the finals.After Thursdays game the current projections have TT ahead 135 to 124.A close game where anyone can win.TT brings a team loaded at the WR slot with Andre Johnson,Brandon Marshall,Jeffrey and Jordey Nelson bringing the score against a well balanced War Pigs team lead by QB Drew Breese.

in the other semi Callahan's Crew gained the right to face overall lowest scoring Backwoodsbob with a solid 152 to 121 win over South Philly slayers.Callahan features the pickup of the year in Nick Foles with a well balanced team including the unstoppable Megatron backing a strong lineup of double digit scorers.Callahan could be the team to beat right now.Backwoodsbob finished the regular season on a roll but has lost several key players with the benching of RG3 and the loss of feature back MJD.Bob isn't out of it though after a key 18.8 points Thursday night from san Diego RB Ryan Mathews.as of this morning the projections have CC ahead by a slim 4.6 points in what could be the best matchup of the week.

Good Luck all and lets have fun

2. I thought it was going to be much tighter than that.

I was worried. A lot. I lost Rogers and Peterson, and I put a lot of overthinking into the roster this week. Can't believe the Asiata move worked.

4. I went to make "the Asiata move", but you already had.

It was a hell of a run, anyway.

Good Luck in the final!

3. Interesting thing about the Yahoo predictions.

I am 100% to win this game at this point, but there was a matchup this season where I was ahead by 7, the other person had no more players, and I still had Olson at TE. I was only a 98% favorite. Which means that Yahoo thought there was a 2% chance Olson got a -8 points.

5. I'm sure

that if Jamaal Charles can get over 50, Dennis Pitta won't have any troubles pulling it off

6. That was my Sunday morning move, too.

I was all, "Dennis Pitta. Yeah! This game is in the bag now."

8. The recap says you had the highest losing score in the league this season.

One statistic that's cold comfort, I'm thinking.

I'm afraid that the 211 generated by most of my guys going off at once used up my fantasy karma.

Back to earth this week, worrying about how much Seattle will use Marshawn Lynch...at least SF is playing after the Seahawks, so they need to start him a play him until the point they feel comfortable about victory. So I'm rooting for a close game with Arizona.

9. I'm hoping that was your top week.

Should be a good match-up this week. Best of luck.

10. I expect it was.

Looking forward to this week, too. Good luck.

May we both break all scoring records

11. Yeah, baby!

Season champion. I have given myself a signature image.

It was a great year. I made some good decisions in the semi-finals and some bad decisions in the finals--luckily some of my long-term players stepped up to cover my bad decisions. Came down to the wire. I was quite sure Davis was going to get a TD pass at the end of the game to give the win to Callahan's Crew.

12. Vernon Davis

killed me in two championship games. At least in our game you won by a reasonable amount that might have held up if Davis just had a non-TD night. Can't complain too much about that, other than my bone-headed decision to start Davis over Thomas.

In the other league, though, where I went 11-2 during the regular season, I lost by less than 0.2 points, with both Davis and Crabtree on my team. So two more yards from either of them...

Anyway, a very entertaining season, an congrats on the win!
